CasperNet gets punked

Published by at 6:37 am under Hacker Hunting,Hackers Talking,India Attacks

Remember the fable about the Scorpion and the Frog?  Well, we got stung…

Lost33 did not make contact with Jumper last night.  In fact, it seems he spent the night changing his QQ number and deleting all info from his blog. The website is now completely empty, except for a change to his personal data.  Lost33 changed his current residence from Sichuan to Beijing:


We retained a full copy of the previous night’s conversation with Lost33 but have decided to only release two sections.  The first section is being reprinted to prove the connection between Lost33 and the losttemp33 hotmail account:

Do you have the email address losttemp33@hotmail.com?

Sorry for my english too
周小屁 2009-04-02 23:58:11
yes ,but i never use it.

The second section is being released…well, to be honest, just because I think it is funny. I can practically see Jumper’s expression as he types, “Yes, really.”

The problem is that your lost33 email is used to register DNS names for hackers

Yes, really

Are we surprised, shocked, or angry over Lost33 punking us…

-Hey, it’s just his nature.

    Oh, thank God for Google Cache and the Wayback Machine! :)

    Yeah, we aren’t sure why Lost33 did it. We got all of the info we wanted prior to contacting him.

    Hi, I’ve been following your lost33 episode which has been very interesting, good work to you all. I’m now curious how you view your actions with hindsight to lost33 doing a runner? Would you have not published on this blog until it was all concluded? Could you have approached lost33 in a more anonymous manner? Or are you happy with how it panned out? I’m not criticizing in anyway. As a student I’m just curious how you evaluate the whole situation?

    Many Thanks

    @Steve -

    Good question. We would have waited to make the initial post if we had known we would get in contact with one of them. I tried to contact both lost33 and opanpan for two nights and never got anywhere so we posted the information that we had. Then Heike and I were chatting and I tried to contact lost33 on a whim. He responded and we had a short chat about the reports which he claimed to know nothing about.

    Then again, he is a smart person and wouldn’t have admitted to anything under any circumstances. Certainly not some stranger on QQ. I’m not sure what we expected him to say – it was interesting that he actually admitted to having the email address though.

    Not sure if you are the same Steven who wrote us about Yang at the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China in Chengdu but I’ve been following up on your lead and it is paying off.

    Some top Chinese hackers seem to be graduates of that fine academy.

    I read academy, knowledge, cracks who learned playing the game in the internet.

    The question is, why i’m not able to learn this all what others learn in academys, so that i hunt them to, especially the person(s) who is/are responsive for the ghostnet.
    I’m just a lonley boy on the street of the internet, with programming skills, nothing more…can’t get in this world of cracks…
